The three Division 1 winning tickets in last night’s mega $70 million Powerball draw have been identified, but the ticket holders are yet to come forward to claim their share worth over $23 million.
The identities of the three $70 million Powerball winners are not yet known, and lottery officials are urging all players who purchased their tickets in the following areas to check their tickets – you could be Australia’s newest three multi-millionaires!
The first lucky winner was a Queenslander who purchased their winning ticket from a local newsagency in Ayr, a town in North Queensland near Townsville.
The second winner was a New South Welshman who purchased their winning ticket from a local newsagency in Oak Flats, a town south of Sydney near Wollongong.
The third and final lucky winner was a Western Australian – further details have not yet emerged at this time.
Each of the three winning tickets matched all 6 numbers plus the Powerball which were drawn last night, and won a Division 1 prize worth $23,333,333.33. The winning numbers from Powerball draw 1017 on Thursday the 12th of November were 3, 15, 19, 26, 35, and 1 plus Powerball number 18.
The other big winner of the week was the lotto player who claimed the entire $35 million Oz Lotto jackpot. The $35 million Oz Lotto winner, who wishes to remain completely anonymous, purchased their winning ticket from a local newsagency in South West Rocks, a town on the Mid North Coast of New South Wales.
The winner matched all 7 winning numbers needed to win Division 1 in Oz Lotto. The winning numbers in Oz Lotto draw 1128 were 34, 26, 1, 10, 12, 3 and 42, plus supplementary numbers 4 and 20.
